Honda VFR800X adventure concept sketch

Honda is to release the new VFR800-based adventure bike at the Milan bike show next week, and has released a final sketch hinting at how the finished bike will look. The new sketch gives a pretty good idea of the final bike’s styling and attitude. The VFR800 powered machine looks to use 17” cast road bike wheels in a Tiger 1050...

Sprint,

Most 'adventure bikes' never see anything muddier than a gravel drive, they are just being honest about it, think updated TDM. instead of making a bike that pretends to have off road prowess (multistrada for example) they have made a road bike with a trailbike seating position.

sprintman, i agree

What is this 'tradition of adventure-sport bikes' that doesn't include offroad ability? Chris Newbigging seems to have invented it on the spot. I can't understand why MCN feels that without the real bike even having seen the light of day it already has to start making excuses for it and talking around its weaknesses.

Wait'n see

Well, if it's a bike with the vfr 800 engine, shaft drive and upright position, have no doubts that Honda may have a winner here. Just think of deauville, new transalp, V-strom and other examples, and what they sold aroun the world. Many of those owners never even tried to go off-road, they don't just have the skills to do it...

lads lads lads..stop bitchin about whether its this or that, just take a look around all the showrooms and all you'll see is wave after wave of race reps, including my old ones !! because more and more seem to be trying summat different and realising there is life after 1000cc superbikes, across the water on mainland europe these kind of bikes and also unfaired bandits and fazers have been popular for years!! we're just stuck in the "sportsbike" mentality..

I for one welcome all the new additions, its opening lots of doors in terms of motorcycling experiences, people have grown tired of blades and R1's, unless all the riding you do is to your local meet 20 mile down the road then thats fine eh..but for those who venture further afield, whether on road or off road!! then these style of bikes make perfect sense, get a cheap track bike then summat like this for the road....Voila!!
